Tweleve Days.. Holy...

Surgery is 12 days away.  My nerves are getting a bit shaky..
All I keep thinking about is how great Steph looks and I want the same outcome.

Seriously, I dont know if I am more excited about the neck or boobs.
The neck is so visible... so it might have the edge.. but then again, the idea of the boobs is high up on my list..

I still have one more hurdle with my mamo.. they found my old films and there was a prior obs on my mamogram.. so they are just looking at this one boob a bit closer..and they keep telling me not to worry..

Why cant they figure this out!! (God I have used those words before and it was scary to type them).. so another ultrasound this week and thats it!!

The scale has somewhat slowed down .. I now slumber at 163 +- 2 lbs.. no sight of the 150's.. and my guess is that after the surgery and fluids it will bump up.. I keep telling myself that I will not look at the scale, but I will.

A big shout out to Jacquie.. and how great she looks after her surgery.. you go girl..

Alright.. that's about what I wanted to share.. have a great weekend...
Hugs to all


  1. That is exciting! Please keep us in the loop.

  2. Wow, it's coming up! :) Don't worry, it'll be GREAT!

  3. Thanks for the shout-out Barb. Your not kidding about the weight-gain in hospital. I came out of hospital 4 lbs heavier but its gone now so don't worry!

  4. Keep us up to date on everything...including the mamo. They're right...don't worry.

  5. Barbara,

    Please email me your mailing address at sjoy172@gmail.com because I have 2 different post surgery creams that I don't need anymore (scar treatment and a bruise reducer) and I want to save you some money (they cost me over $100!) They are alost completely full containers and were purchased directly from my surgeon, so I thought you may want them...free of course!!

    I am SO excited for you!!! :)

  6. Oh and that is sjoy1972@gmail.com, not the one above...I mistyped...Stupid keyboard!

  7. Completely normal to be anxious and nervous and excited...you're going to do great though! Love you!

  8. How exciting! You've just got to get through these last few days and its all going to work out exactly how its supposed to! You're going to look so great!

  9. I'm SO excited for you! I can't wait to hear how it goes!!
